... much all looked the same.
As we approached the city - it became a sensory overload. Taxis, private cars, scooters, motorcycles, school kids on bikes and mopeds (often 3 or even 4 to a scooter), pedestrians walking every which way with no semblance of order at all. But amazingly, it just flowed and unexpectedly and suddenly yielded somehow to avoid collisions. Stop lights? What stop lights? There may as well not have ...

We head out and bean food then we find a pub quiz and join in. We weren't that great (except I nailed that the favourite food of the teenage mutant ninja turtles was pizza) we joined a group of English lads that seemed to be pretty scrubby and they had only really started travelling.

The best coffee though is the standard Vietnamese coffee (hot or iced). Instead of normal milk, they use sweetened condensed milk. OMG! I especially like it when they serve the milk to you in a separate little jug, so you can save a little bit to eat on its on, or at least wipe your ...
